It is a very clever idea, and looks Terrific. Well done. You are a very clever lady.
It's easy. After I made the couronnes I decorated them with stitch bullion (or knots?). The silk thread and my fantasy made them so.
I was referring to the Ribbed, - as you called them.. Better description, I think. With a close up look, It appears to be a spiralled thread , which is then just whipped over, not buttonhole stitched. It appeas to be 2 passes - one to whip the "foundation" thread over the Cordonette, for the whole length, and then return with close whipping over that "foundation" thread.
Whatever - it looks terrific, especially where she has grouped them in 2 s or 3s. It gives a fantastic effect.
Yes, it is my own design and now I'm designing a new because in my project there are three different trees. The cordonnettes are done normally and the types of picots are those we make in Venetian and Burano lace.
I agree with Elizabeth that the couronnes are really interesting. I can't tell from the photo whether you have done those as you do the cordonnette or whether you add them on afterwards. I also love the different types of picots. The overall effect is great - is it your own design?
Be sure to check out Ombretta's blog, where she has many of her other needle laces. (Link on Her Page.
This is Just beautiful. I have not seen threaded couronnes used like that , or fine (thin) ones put together in groups. They are fantastic, and give a fabulous look to the lace.
Thank you for sharing it with us, to inspire us.
This is marvelous.
